There's not been much to report on the natural history front at Tense Towers lately. It's been one of those weeks where Life seems to get in the way of living.
However, whilst our lass was pottering in the garden today, she found this little fellow sheltering under a plant pot.
I was pleasantly surprised to have the opportunity to take a photograph, as when they're in our pond, the newts are so timid that you can't get anywhere near 'em.
I imagine it's thinking "When I'm all growed up, I'm gonna eat your dragonfly larvae, Mr Photographer Man."
